#3323: Samyang Foods Buldak Carbo HOT Chicken Flavor Topokki - South Korea

Two days in a row of varieties with long names! This one does NOT include noodles, however it’s topokki. What’s that? Wikipedia, if you please –

teok-bokki (떡볶이) or stir-fried rice cakes is a popular Korean food made from small-sized garae-tteok (long, white, cylinder-shaped rice cakes) called tteokmyeon (떡면; “rice cake noodles”) or commonly tteok-bokki-tteok(떡볶이 떡; “tteok-bokki rice cakes”).[1][2] Eomuk(fish cakes), boiled eggs, and scallions are some of the most commonly added ingredients. It can be seasoned with either spicy gochujang (chili paste) or non-spicy ganjang (soy sauce)-based sauce; the former being the most typical form,[3] while the latter is less common and sometimes called gungjung-tteok-bokki (royal court tteok-bokki).

Today, variations also include curry-tteok-bokki, cream sauce-tteok-bokki, jajang-tteok-bokki, seafood-tteok-bokki, galbi-tteok-bokki and so on. Tteok-bokki is commonly purchased and eaten at bunsikjip (snack bars) as well as pojangmacha (street stalls). There are also dedicated restaurants for tteok-bokki, where it is referred to as jeugseog tteok-bokki (impromptu tteok-bokki).

Curry topokki?! Oh man I’m missing out. These little rice tubes of deliciousness are just what the doctor ordered – let’s give it a try!

An included fork!

A little nest of noodles.

Tteokbokki!

A wet sauce sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and sesame seeds. The noodles are great – working with the sloppiness of the sauce – tteokbokki also was the same. Sauce was interesting – like a sweet and spicy tteokbokki sauce with notes of black bean. Delightful – first one I’ve eaten that wasn’t a mukbang in a while. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8809061679017.

Found this one up in Canada at Smart N Save as well. It turns out that this brand is actually related to Nongshim. It’s produced by Taekyung Nong San, which is part of the Nongshim company as can be seen on their logo. Interesting! This is a combo of tteokbokki and noodles. Let’s check it out!

Tteokbokki.

A wet sachet of sauce (see it being implemented on the episode of Instant Noodle Recipe Time below).

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, soft egg, sesame seeds, and chili flake. Wow – this one is amazing. The noodle is a glass style and works well with the sauce and tteokbokki. Tteokbokki came out splendidly. The sauce is literally full impact yummy. I don’t eat many instant varieties except for mukbang, and I’m happy to say there are two more varieties of these bowls I have to review and they will both get mukbang-ified. The flavor is a sweet, spicy one with a thick luxuriant sauce. This is absolutely excellent and it was very hard not to go caveman on this and gobble it down. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8809061679000.
